Grilled Cheese and Tomato Sandwich

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

A quick and easy hot sandwich...I ate this almost every day when I was in school.


  1. In a sauté pan cook onion slice until softened and starting to caramelize.
  2. Butter one side each of the bread slices.
  3. Build sandwich like a traditional grilled cheese, 1 slice bread butter side down, cheese slice, onions and tomato, cheese slice, and bread slice butter side up.
  4. Place in sauté pan over medium heat and cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Flip sandwich over, if you have a panini press now is the time to use it! If not, pressing down firmly with a spatula works well also. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Cut in half and sprinkle with sea salt.
  7. Be careful, tomatoes will be hot!

Delicious! I've had grilled cheese tomato sandwiches many times, but never with the addition of onion, and it was fabulous! I used whole wheat bread, everything else was as written. Served with corn on the cob this was a perfect end-of-summer dinner. Thanks!

Delicious! I didn't have sourdough so used 9-grain bread. Loved it! Thank you!
